Disability, Obesity and Ageing offers an engaging account of a new area of pressing concern, analysing the way in which 'spurned' identities are depicted and reacted to in televisual genres and on-line forums. Examining the symbolic power of the media, this book presents case studies from reality, drama and comic television programmes popular in the UK, USA and Australia to shed light on the representation of disability, obesity, and ageing the manner in which their status as unwanted and unwelcome identities is perpetuated.
